Re: Lost Valley Trail

Date Hiked: December 10, 2018 General Condition: Passable (some brush and/or deadfalls, tread evident) what a difference a few days can make since the last report by Leor.

old road is easy to hike. it's wide and brush free. once it turns back to the trail it gets pretty brushy at times but still easy to follow.

Re: Marble Peak Trail

Date Hiked: October 14, 2018 General Condition: Passable (some brush and/or deadfalls, tread evident) I generally agree with Betsy's previous report however the wild rose hip around Tank Oak Camp is pretty bad.
